Flipkart is a popular e-commerce site where you can shop for a various product in an easy way. Last Month, Flipkart partnered with MakeMyTrip to make an entry in the travel industry. Now the company has announced the ‘Travel by Flipkart’ feature for its Mobile app.
However, the travel booking feature is available for Flipkart mobile app. Also, the Travel feature is placed within the hamburger menu which is located on the right side of the app. In order to use this travel feature, users can either tap three horizontal lines to open the navigation menu or search for Travel option within the app itself.
Flipkart said in its blog post, “Need to book a flight ticket? Flipkart gives you wings to fly! Try the new travel booking experience on Flipkart, powered by MakeMyTrip. It’s quick, with the added convenience of instant booking and secure payments.”
After tapping the Travel option, a user will redirect to a page which is similar to MakeMyTrip. Then the user can search for flights and also complete the booking without leaving Flipkart app. Moreover, the MakeMyTrip app doesn’t require any additional permission to use this Travel Booking feature within Flipkart app. The Flipkart also says that it will focus on user privacy while booking a flight ticket.
However, a user can manage flight booking ticket in an easy way. As booked ticket will show in the “Orders” section of the Flipkart app. Meanwhile, users can take action with that booked ticket. They can cancel, reschedule or claim refunds just like you do with your normal Flipkart orders.
In addition, you can avail 10% discount on HDFC debit or credit card and 5% discount on other cards. As this offer is valid during the Big Shopping Days sale, i.e from May 13 to May 16. In future, this partnership will result in the availability of hotel, bus, and cabs service. As this can be done using MakeMyTrip’s popular brands – redBus and Goibibo.
